Do you ever feel like you are living in the best of days~ like right now? Last week I was riding a serious and much needed high from my visit to San Diego. My family has a way of charging my spirit and spending time with them is food for my soul. That's why it's so nice to also find the same love in my tight circle of friends in Portland and abroad. I expect to be leaning hard on all of you this year.
The pillow above was made by Ilaria and is so fitting right now. I went to the doctor with my Dad last week for this 3 month check up. The good news is the cancer in his head and neck has not come back, but the bad news is that he has a new large tumor on his pancreas. My poor Dad, what can you say really? I decided I needed more color in my house to cheer me up.
Go bold or go home!
I love it when people say, your gonna to have to repaint that when you move. I decorate my house for me and I live in it now :)
The downstairs bathroom and we replaced everything!
I also needed a bit of retail therapy. I hung out with Cristi on Friday and my friend Cathy on Saturday. Friday we popped into Hollywood Vintage. Gorgeous collection of clothes!
I didn't buy any of this, it was all too expensive, but I loved looking! The dress below was $99.
I ate like 15, I KNOW! At one point I looked over at Cristi and she had one in each hand. See what I mean about life being pretty good. Sure eating donuts and shopping will not make my Dad's cancer go away but it helped me to feel better and I'm going to need to be strong for both of us.
and find time to laugh at the clowns
and stare at my KMK leggings
Play dress up
Eat yummy Salvadorian food!
and celebrate Birthdays (that is Chris's younger brother)
No matter what lies ahead I'm bringing my smile and my sense of humor.
